BERN, Switzerland – March 17, 2022 – Terraformers, the interstellar roguelike colony builder from developer Asteroid Lab and publisher Goblinz Publishing, transforms the environment of Early Access on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG on Thursday, April 21, 2022.
Mold Mars into a habitable world as the first intrepid explorers to leave Earth. Explore the realistic expanse of the Red Planet by discovering rich resource deposits, stunning natural wonders, and clearing the grounds for vital structures. Develop thriving metropolises and construct essential infrastructure for its new population with schools, greenhouse farms, eco-housing, hospitals, and more.
Choose leaders for your brave new world, with each remaining in power for 10 years. Select from a brilliant Nobel peace prize winner to a practical private security contractor, and an astute expert in simulation programming. Each candidate has impressive bonuses to offer, such as food management, mining, and energy savings.
Increase the atmosphere, temperature, oceans, and oxygen levels to spread life and improve living conditions. Wield the power of the Gods, creating life beginning as small as adaptive bacteria to fully developed forests with fauna. Terraform the planet by restarting a volcano, constructing giant space mirrors, or crashing ice asteroids to geo-engineer the entire world.
Maintain essential resources by setting up an interplanetary trading system with Earth. Mine rare metals, manufacture them into advanced goods, and set up an optimal production network between ever-growing cities. Set in a realistic version of Mars, Terraformers allows players to colonize the entire expanse of the planet with an accurate representation of real-life locations and what is known of its topography.
“Terraformers is an optimistic vision of our future once humankind is ready to leave Earth and settle somewhere else,” said Alexis Giard, co-founder and game developer at Asteroid Lab. “It delivers the excitement of exploration, the furthering of our understanding of the universe, and the ability to go where no one has gone before and do the unachievable within the realms of realism.”
Terraformers lands on Early Access to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG on Thursday, April 21, 2022, for $19.99 USD / 19.99€. It supports English, German, Simplified Chinese, French, Spanish (Spain, Latin America), and Russian languages.
